Evans Cycles is Pleased to Announce its New RIDE IT Autumn/Winter Rides

by Holly Blades

As summer fades into a distant memory, and the leave start to change colour and fall from the trees, plus that chill starts to cut through the air. Everyone's motivation to ride starts to waver due to these changes so the Evans Cycles RIDE IT team are challenging you to keep on riding with the launch of their new autumn and winter dates. 

Whatever type of riding you're into there should be something to help you get your riding fix whether its clocking up some miles on our road sportives, exploring off road with our MTB rides or mixing together a bit of both with one of our multi terrain sportive cross rides. 

Mark Gregory, RIDE IT Event Manager, said: "We've had a busy summer with our road and off road rides and whilst these will continue through the winter we're particularly excited to be announcing new dates for our multi terrain Sportive Cross format. They offer something a little different to the traditional sportive and are a great way to add some new interest to your winter riding" 

The Sportive Cross rides are ideally suited to cyclocross or adventure road bikes, but can also be enjoyed on a mountain bike or even hybrid bike with suitable tyres. The routes are typically a 50:50 split between on road and off road offering a full multi-terrain experience where you could find yourself riding on anything from tarmac to gravel, grass, dirt tracks or sand as you head around the course. 

2016/17 Sportive Cross event dates are:        

Thetford - 27th November 2016
Hampshire - 4th December 2016
Newbury - 22nd January 2017
Leeds - 5th March 2017
Gatwick - 19th March 2017

As with all Evans Cycles RIDE IT events you'll get fully way-marked routes, mechanical support, electronic chip timing and well-stocked High5 sponsored feed stations. 

In addition everyone signing up 8 weeks or more in advance gets a free High5 event pack and on the day of the event there are exclusive offers on FWE riding kit if you need to top up your winter wardrobe.

Adult entry prices range from £7.50 to £25.00 with free child entry for those under 16.
